■日本語訳 Translation into Japanese

ときどき、口から出任せで何か言ってしまったときなど、それを修正したいと思わないことがあるだろう。そして、まるでそれを本気で言ったかのような芝居をするのだ。すると面白いもので、出任せのなかにも真実があることが見えてくる。たとえば、人の評判を割り引いて話すことは、それをおとしめることでもあるということが見えてくる。あの偉大なイギリス作家と出会って以来ずっと強いられてきた奇妙な生活を思い返してみるに、何かそのような形で、じつはこれこそが自分が夢見ていた生活なのだと思うようになった。めちゃくちゃにしてしまったそれまでの生活から何とか離れたい、隠れたい、逃げ出したいと願っていたのだとな。

   V・S・ナイポール=著 斎藤兆史(さいとう・よしふみ)=訳

■英語原文 The original text in English

It sometimes happens that when you make a slip of the tongue you don't want to correct it. You try to pretend that what you said was what you meant. And then it often happens that you begin to see that there is some truth in your error. You begin to see, for instance, that to subtract from someone's good name can also be said to detract from that name. In some such way, contemplating the strange life that had been forced on me by that meeting with the great English writer, I began to see that it was a way of life that for some years I had been dreaming of: the wish to renounce, hide, run away from the mess I had made of my life.
